lol at some of the ridiculous ratings in here, but yes, as long as he keeps his head in the game, and I don't see why he won't, he's smart and knows the business supremely, and most importantly, he HIRES well, he will be up there, not just on a british list, but possibly on a all-time list, guy has barely start and I'd say he's made 5 great films and 1 good one.

Memento - 9/10
Insomnia - 7/10
Batman Begins - 9/10
The Prestige - 8/10
The Dark Knight - 8/10
Inception - 8/10

I just hope he goes back to more quiet thriller styles for a bit after Batman 3, TDK and Inception while still the blockbusters in years, were incredibly over the top and over directed for me, they were way too loud, the music rarely stopped, and sometimes it was just annoying.

I stated earlier that I think Nolan's an average director, especially with his Batman films, but Inception blew me away! I doubt there will be a better film this year.

My rankings
Memento 3/5
Insomnia 2/5
Batman Begins 2/5
The Prestige 3/5
The Dark Knight 2/5
Inception 5/5


How can you give some of these films 2/5, which is The Expendables standard. Even if you didn't enjoy them, surely you can still rate them at least 3/5 for the fantastic visuals, music, and storyline? I didn't enjoy Shutter Island at the cinema at all, but I still respected the film enough to give it a 6/10 (but after re-watching on DVD, an 8/10 - great stuff).

My Rankings:

Doodlebug (Short) 7/10
Memento 8/10
Insomnia 7/10
Batman Begins 8+/10
The Prestige 7/10
The Dark Knight 9/10
Inception 9/10

Well it's all down to taste.  The ones I rated 2/5 in my opinion actually had mediocre-to-poor storylines, visuals and [especially] music.  They bored me, especially the Batman films, which didn't even deliver on the action stakes.  I enjoyed The Expendables more then more than those films.  Again, it's all down to taste!  Then again, after loving Inception maybe I'll try them out again.....

I disagree on two counts, firstly the only avenge film he has made is the Prestige, the rest have ranged from good to very good.  And second I am still not convinced of Inception as being his master piece, yes its another very good film, and marks another, unique chapter in his career, but I still think a couple of poor performances, and some rambling scenes keep it below things like Memento and The Batman films for example.  Althrough Inception is something I am inching to see again.

After Inception my Nolan list looks likes:

Memento 9/10
Batman Begins 9/10
Insomnia 8/10
The Dark Knight 8/10
Inception 8/10
The Following 7/10
The Prestige 6/10




I definitely recommend watching Inception again, I found it really held up to a repeat viewing (in fact I enjoyed it more the second time.)
Cotillard was superb in it! Her on screen presence gave me goosebumps and a shiver down my spine. Leonardo was great in the lead role too which brings me to my question, which actors do you feel gave poor performances?

Nolan can without a doubt be considered one of Britain's greatest directors.

Of all the opinions that can be said,and all the entitlement we all have to say them,
Christopher Nolan has NEVER made a 2 star film.
Never.

Shane Meadows maybe, though I have yet to see any of his films.  Guy Ritchie, if anything I'd say he's slightly overrated though Sherlock Holmes was better than it had any right to be.

Not sure what this has to do with Chris Nolan though.

Ive enjoyed every Christopher Nolan movie, apart from Inception. So yeah I'd say he probably is one of the best british directors.

I like all his films so far, and some of them I can easily rewatch a dozen more times; I'd pretty much say he's one of Britain's best right now.

In twenty or so years he'll be regarded up there alongside Lean, Powell and Hitchcock in the British stakes.

But unlike those he's never even made a British film.

I don't see how you can call Nolan's films British.

The Prestige - 9
Memento - 9
Dark Knight - 8
Batman Begins - 7
Inception - 6

I really think The Prestige is his best work. I feel about The Prestige the way many people seem to feel about Inception. I just found Inception really boring and The Prestige totally gripping every time I watch it. I've got Insomnia recorded on Sky+ to watch this week also.

I'm not, I am saying he is British as was the othr directors I had listed and that in time he will be lauded alongside them for talent and quality of end product.

Nolan is one of the best directors working in the world today, definately in the top 5 IMO. I love all of his films with Insomnia being the worst and i still rate that quite highly.

Prefer Danny Boyle to Christopher Nolan interms of top English directors at the moment.
And though I respect Nolans works in general I still think there is a slight essence of shallowness in his style.

I don't really have a favorite current British director. No one really stands out, but if I had to choose, maybe Stephen Frears or Danny Boyle. Does Paweł Pawlikowski count, if so, it is him.

The Prestige would count as a British film too, if he hadn't filmed it in America. Why Chris, why?

He probably isn't going to come back over here in a hurry in fairness, and why would he? Warners (and anyone else) are going to continue to throw money at him for a while yet, at least untill he makes something considered a failure.

Does it even matter if he never makes a British film? No.
